Hello Stingray Families,
If you are receiving this e-mail message, you have a swimmer who has qualified for the Contra Costa County Swim Championship Meet (County)--congratulations!
The County Meet will be held at the Steve Heaston Aquatic Center at Acalanes High School (1200 Pleasant Hill Rd. Lafayette, CA 94549). The events are spread out over three days, starting on Friday, August 11th and ending on Sunday, August 13th. You can see the exact schedule at the following link: County Meet Swim Format. Please note that the relay trials on Friday are scheduled from approximately 4:00 until 7:00, but with warm ups and set up activities factored in, a time frame of 3:00 to 7:00 might be a more accurate window.
2017 Stingray County Relay Teams
What Coach Steve needs right away is confirmation from all swimmers who are in relays that they will be able to commit to the relays. Relay preliminary trials will be on Friday, August 11th and if a relay time makes it into the finals or consolation finals, they will have to come back on Saturday, August 12th for Medley Relay finals, and Sunday, August 13th for the Free Relay finals.
You must notify Coach Steve by thisTuesday evening (you can e-mail him at email@example.com) to let him know whether or not your swimmer is committing to his or her relay team. Please note that for many of the relay teams, if one of the swimmers is unable to attend the meet, the relay team will be scratched. Regarding the practices this week and next, relay team members should plan on attending starting on Wednesday, as the coaches should know at that point what relay teams we will officially have.
2017 Stingray County Qualifiers
This week, Coach Steve will ask the county qualifiers who have qualified in multiple events which two events they would like to swim. If a qualifier will not be at practice, he needs to know ASAP what 2 events they would like to swim (this only pertains to swimmers who have qualified for multiple events).
LAST CHANCE MEET SWIMMERS
Swimmers who are going to the last chance meets need to send Coach Steve the official meet results file as soon as possible. All county entries are due by 9am on August 7th--late entries will not be accepted! Please note that relay teams are set based upon personal best times through League Meet and last chance meet times will not be used to change the relay teams.
